Ranger Bravo: To be honest, I can understand your love for space, Mark.I've always loved space myself. And I'm not saying that because I'm a fan, it's honestly how I feel. At night, when the sky is clear, we're given a view into literal eternity. We can see the beautiful view of the universe with countless stars and galaxies above us. We can literally see into forever. And then the wonders of the cosmos… planets with the possibility of sustaining life, the idea of other life forms out there besides us, and the thoughts of what lies beyond. It's truly magnificent, mysterious, and beautiful. :)
The Mighty Captain Ginyu: Mark is claustrophobic because he does not like a lack of space.
Zombie At Work HD: Mark looks like he's in a padded room.
edgyserf: mark's enthusiasm about space is (quite frankly) adorable
finer axis: who is watching this in 2017
Shivaxi: Advice eh? Well all I can tell you is that you really should pay attention more to your surroundings and what people are saying. Move slower, take your time, and don't always talk over everything and important events. I notice in a lot of your videos, you will get stuck somewhere in some place in a game because you tried to rush too quick and skipped over an important message or didn't listen or something or another.\n\nI'll also add that you don't have to be talking 24/7 during a playthrough of a game to be interesting to watch. I enjoy just watching you play even if you're not speaking at all =P And this seems like one of those games you really want to take your time with and soak in the ambiance and atmosphere and really get lost in the game. Forget you're talking to an audience and just play =)
XboxDude TVHead: Just wait 2014 mark there will be something much scarier
